Event description

Description

Professor Alexander Broadie, editor of The Cambridge Companion to the Scottish Enlightenment, addresses the vexed question of David Hume's religious beliefs. Hume was denounced as an atheist by his enemies and called "The Great Infidel" by James Boswell. Hume is also described as an early Humanist and his books are said to have promoted an outlook free of religion. He certainly denied any life hereafter, but was he really anti-religious?
